January Energy Insight: Soaking up Life
The beginning of January kicks off with an energy that may have you feeling like you need to pull back and focus on the details. Don’t be surprised if you feel a draw to be more behind-the-scenes as this is a good time to lean into your hard-working nature and hone in on your responsibilities.
It might do you some good to review logistics, numbers, or any other minutiae that you normally wouldn’t spill over; we’re all feeling a tendency to be a bit more deliberate with our actions at this time, so use the energy to your benefit!
In the essence of goal setting and creating resolutions, there will be a strong contemplative type of energy at hand, so whether you feel called to create a finite list of goals for this year or you are more comfortable simply reflecting on where you’ve been in 2017, know that the energy is very conducive to either approach.
The middle of the month carries us into this space where we’re feeling some fresh energy moving about--energy regarding creativity, love, and ideas. It could feel like there is a building up of sorts on the inside, almost like an energy focused on anticipation. We’ll start to see new things developing over the course of the next several weeks, so keep an eye out for new partnerships in business, friendships, or even romance if you find yourself in that boat.
By the time we reach the end of January, we’re even deeper in the energy of beginnings, but with a different twist than what we experience mid-month. If there is something you are working on starting, you may feel like you’re ready to take flight but then instantly question whether or not you’re prepared. On top of that, there will be a strong tendency for the people around you to be overly cautious and warn you against doing something rash.
Remember that there are great lessons contained in what we perceive as failure, so sink into the spontaneity, excitement, and eagerness this time brings. All experts started somewhere and this is a perfect time to put some faith into practice!
